item? >> colleagues, thank you for convening today to hear this one important item. thank you to the members of the public for joining us. this is an amendment to the planning code to clarify the process for the construction of nonconforming uses that are destroyed by fire or acts of god. a fire was caused by an illegal marijuana growing operation that burned six houses. the owners of these properties have been engaging this city in reconstruction of their property. under the current planning code, that is a nonconforming use. the planning code has a process for nonconforming uses that are destroyed by fires or acts of god that governs the time. , is somewhat vague.

today's legislation would clarify the time period or the owner could restore a non comforming use. specifically, these additional modifications would do three things. it would change the times period in which an owner could reconstruct. this is roche -- retroactive to 2009 and make changes to section 188 of the planning code. i would like to bring in rogers from the planning department who could walk us through these additional changes. >> good afternoon, committee members. i would like to convey the gratitude for making these changes to the planning code.
